Gatheredge talks of repapering her parlor, and Ginger gets him ready to sleep in the scullery at a nights notice, but the letting of lodgings is not a staple industry in this quarter of Yorkshire, and folks would fare ill on it who knew nothing of the art of keeping a pig or growing their own potatoes in the bit of garden at the back.

Visitors pass through, indeed, in large enough numbers between seed- and harvest-time (mostly by bicycle), staring their way round the village from house to house. But all that ever develops is an occasional request for a cup of water-in the hope, no doubt, that we may give them milk-or an interrogation as to the road to somewhere else. Stegs reply to the latter, through a long succession of summers, has waxed into a set formula, which he prepares with all the exactness of a prescription: There s two rawds [roads] tiv it, he says, measuring out his words carefully against the light of inward understanding, like tincture in a chemists vial.
